“First come the snacks. A sphere of foie gras is transformed Heston-style into a “grape” in a tawny port skin. Campfire “coals” are filled with barramundi and smeared with a Vegemite mayo in a tribute to the chefs’ new home (it works!). Frozen pearls of bone marrow are dropped into a sesame ice cream cone with smoked cherry.”
Anchored by the 11-course degustation lunch at the d’Arenberg Cube restaurant your day begins with a private tour of the Cube and its Alternative Realities Museum. Initiated with a glass of sparkling wine on the Cube balcony we then proceed through to a private Varietal Discovery Masterclass tasting of d’Arenberg’s best wines.
Cited by Gourmet Traveller in its national Top 100 restaurants, lunch is served.
Your seasonally changing degustation lunch is matched with current and museum vintages from the d’Arenberg cellars. An extraordinary list of global desirables, and the most interesting of three tasting-flight options pits d’Arenberg wines against the rest of the world. With ur willingness to engage in this fantastic sensory overload, you are rewarded through all 11 courses.
Have no fear, when you think you just can’t take anymore, we’ll whisk you down for a relaxing roll along the Fleurieu coast for a majestic beach drive, before sliding between your 1200 thread count sheets on your King size bed for a much needed nap.
Your tour is a private charter and includes all transfers, experiences and lunch, plus transport in luxury Land Rover Discovery. Before your Cube immersion, for those willing to rise a little earlier, there is an option – at no cost – to visit ancient Onkaparinga Gorge.
